Pokemon Go developer Niantic is getting ready to release the final wave of Gen 3 Pokemon.
The Pokemon Go Gen 3 update has a February 9 release date, but no specific start time. Big Pokemon Go releases typically go live at 9pm, so stay tuned for more information.
The update will introduce Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza, which will be available to battle until March 16. Other new Gen 3 Pokemon from the Hoenn region include Salamence, Altaria, Metagross and lots more.
And in an unusual move, players will only encounter Gen 3 Pokemon until February 13.
"Alongside several Flying and Dragon-type Pokemon appearing in Pokemon Go for the first time, the Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza will descend from the ozone layer and become available in Raid Battles for a limited time," reads a Niantic post.
"In celebration, Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region will take over wild encounters until February 13.
"Don’t miss this unique opportunity to catch powerful Pokemon such as Salamence, Altaria, Metagross, and more!"
And that's not all Niantic has in store for Pokemon Go.
Fans can also expect new Raid battles and different Pokemon to hatch from eggs. That's on top of new in-store boxes, and a special Lure module bonus.
"With all of these Pokemon to catch and power up, it’s important to stock up on supplies," Niantic continues. "Starting February 9, new special boxes–which include Raid Passes, Incubators, and Star Pieces–will be available in the in-game store until February 23.
"In addition, Lure Modules will remain activated for six hours until February 23! These items will be perfect aids in your Pokemon Go adventure."
With the new Gen 3 event ending on February 13, there's still time for a Valentine's Day event to launch.
Last year, fans were able to double the amount of Candy they earned every time they caught, hatched, or transferred a Pokemon.
Perhaps the event will launch alongside rumoured new story quests, which were discovered in the game files.
Reports suggest it will contain a multi-quest system, complete with a greater emphasis on supporting characters and story.
